Zinedine Zidane delighted with Real Madrid attitude

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has praised his side’s attitude after he began his reign at the club with a 5-0 victory over Deportivo La Coruna this evening.

Gareth Bale helped himself to a hat-trick at the Bernabeu while Karim Benzema added two more to give the Frenchman an emphatic victory in his first match in charge of a senior club.

Cristiano Ronaldo did not join his fellow attackers on the scoresheet, but Zidane insists that he was still happy with the contribution that the Portuguese forward made.

“Nothing has changed among the players, what’s changed is the coach, and I’m going to try and make them play in the best way possible.

What I liked the most was the attitude. It’s not easy to win 5-0 and I was impressed with the attitude of those who played and those who didn’t,” Zidane told reporters.

“Gareth just has to do what I’ve asked everyone else to do, which is to defend without the ball and open the pitch up and play when we have it. “Cristiano played really well.

He always feels he has to score because that’s what he likes to do but I thought he played well. I’m sure he’ll score in other games.” Despite the win, Madrid remain two points adrift of Barcelona in the La Liga title race.
